Lansing Mayor Will Not Run For Rogers Seat

Posted: Updated:

(WLNS) - Lansing mayor Virg Bernero will not seek the 8th District Congressional seat that is opening up due to the Mike Rogers retirement.

Bernero announced his decision on social media this morning.

"So much is broken about Washington that it is tempting for me to contemplate a future trying to fix it," he said on his Facebook page. "But my heart and my creative energies are committed to Lansing and its continued growth. I will not seek the open 8th district congressional seat this year. Many thanks to each of my supporters who weighed in on this matter.", said Bernero.

Last Friday Rogers announced his decision to not run for re-election. 

We'll have more on today's Bernero decision on 6 News at Noon.
